|PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: Banganapalle
was held by a Hindu ruler prior to 1651. It was conquered
by Ismail Adilshah along with the surrounding jagirs and
were conferred by him on his General, Siddu Simbul, later
on, the whole of the Deccan was conquered by Padshah
Aurangzeb, and as a consequence, Banganapalle passed
directly under his supremacy. The Mughal Emperor appointed
Muhammed Beg Khan Rosebahandi, the uncle of his minister
Mubariz Khan, as Killedar of Banganapalle. The descendants
of Muhammed Beg Khan held the jagir till the death of
Fazle Ali Khan II in 1769. As he died without issue, he
was succeeded by Saiyid Husain Ali Khan, his sister's son
by Saiyid Muhammed Khan Nughadi. After his death in 1783,
Tippu Sultan was offended by the widow of Husain Ali Khan,
and the family had to flee after the jagir was
confiscated. They entered military service in Hyderabad,
and earned great repute there. Eventually they gathered a
force and marfched on Banganapalle, killed the killedar,
Kutbudin, at the battle of Tamadpalle, and regained their
